Features

1. Size

The tires are 8-inch pneumatic tires, which have closer grip than urethane and can carry a heavier load than its previous models E100-E175. It can carry the weight of up to 69 kg (152lbs). The pneumatic tires make it a non-multi-terrain scooter.

2. Brakes

It is safer than older front brakes or foot operated brakes.  The handlebar is custom made for kids shorter than 5’6”, which means that kids taller than this might not be comfortable with riding theE200 Electric Scooter.

3. Speed

E200 doesn’t need ‘push start’ and can be started with a speed throttle with which you can also alter speed. It reaches it maximum speed i.e., 12mph in a few seconds. The speed is not excessive but adequate to feel the adrenaline rush. It is the appropriate speed for kids of this age group. If you have ever ridden on a Razor E100 or E150 electric scooters, then you probably are aware that the throttles are either full speed or nothing.

This can be very unsafe, especially if your little one hasn’t had any experience of riding an electric scooter before. But the E200 throttle is a game-changer, which allows variable speed- slow, intermediate and fast speeds. Easier Control=More safety & More Fun!

4. Performance

It reaches its top speed of 12mph (19kph) with the Razor’s range of fast electric scooters quickly. It’s not quite a powerhouse as the E300, but it performs better than its previous model E100 by an enormous margin while still maintaining the most secure top-speed for young kids. The scooter is driven by a quiet motor, which makes it a lot more fun to ride without the annoying sound that other electric scooters make.

5. Battery

The 24v (2 x 12v) battery runs up to 40 minutes continuously after 12-hour full charge. Then it takes up to 6 hours to charge it up to ¾ of its whole battery. It is highly recommended to charge before you use- especially before your first use. Many people forget to do but, if you wish for the best performance out of the scooter, fully charge the battery before use.

6. Style

Razor E200 might not be the trendiest scooter on the block, but it does offer three colors: Teal, Green, and Red. Moreover, to make it stand out, you could customize the deck.

Pros & Cons

Pros

  • Great performance: This power-packed electric scooter gives excellent results during execution. It has compiled safety and fun for the kids riding the scooter. It has an ultra-quiet motor, and the motor is chain-driven. The Razor E200 flaunts a high-torque and a handy twist-grip throttle. Ride time may differ minutely depending on road conditions, climate scenarios and appropriate maintenance.
  • Good mid-weight scooter: The most advantageous feature is the scooter’s weight. It is relatively light and perfectly sturdy to carry the rider. For instance, if the battery dies mid-ride it isn’t a pain to carry the scooter back to the charging point. With other scooters in this product type, kids need to push and drag their heavy scooters back to its charging point, which becomes a difficulty.
  • Safety first: It is prone to slow down in grassy areas or rougher terrain since the E200 Electric Scooter isn’t made for off-road use. This favors the safety of the kids by controlling the speed of the scooter if you accidentally go off-road. It is highly advised to follow road safety rules as well as protective gear such as elbow/knee pads and a helmet.
  • Solid build: The Razor E200 is very sturdily built an electric scooter with a huge sized steel deck and full frame. It’s a lucid and robust design for carrying the recommended age group. It has a spring-loaded kickstand. It has huge 8-inch pneumatic tires for a fun filled and smooth ride.
  • Easy to assemble: No major expertise is required; just insert the handlebars into the scooter. Do not forget to plug it in to charge the scooter. As Razor states in their advertisement, it is very easy to assemble the scooter parts together indeed. No alterations are needed to the brake; tire pressure or chain, like these, will have been incorporated in the factory. The Razor E200 scooter is equipped with a battery already installed and a separate charger with it.

Cons

  • Not fast enough: If you compare the Razor E200 with other scooters for kids on the market, it is fast but not too fast. It is not too fast which complements the safety aspect.
  • Not all-terrain type: Pneumatic tires refrain the scooter from giving the most pleasurable ride on off-road terrains. It is best suited to concrete streets and slows down automatically when it is used on grassy areas or rougher terrain.
  • Slow Charging: The battery is 24v (2 x 12v). It takes up to 12 hours to charge the scooter completely giving it a 40-minute continuous run. This is relatively little slow compared to other electric scooters in this range.

Conclusion

This sleek Razor E200 Electric Scooter is more suited to young teenagers than E100 or E300 because it can handle more weight with just the perfect deck size. Its user ratings are 8.4/10 by Performance, Build Quality, Style, Price, and Battery. The reason that Razor E200 gained immense popularity is that it never fails any target age group and experience.
